Morrissey is under fire for comparing the brutal Norway massacre to acts committed by fast food restaurants.

"We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead," the former lead singer of The Smiths said during a concert in Poland on July 24. "Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried (expletive) every day."
